initial Training

Private Pilot

Learning to fly, whether for enjoyment, dream fulfillment, or employment, is a rewarding, exciting, and emotional experience that cannot be explained

Whether you’re learning to fly for a career, as a hobby, or to fulfill a lifelong dream, the first step towards this goal is obtaining a Private Pilot Certificate.

A Private Pilot’s License allows a pilot to fly a single-engine airplane under visual flight rules (VFR), referring to visibility of at least three miles, as well as at night. A private pilot may carry passengers but may not be paid for doing so, although the pilot can share operating expenses with the passengers
